HUNDREDS of businesses across Donegal will have their shutters up this morning as Ireland enters the second phase of the roadmap to reopen the country.
The original five-phase plan has been condensed to four with many businesses back open for business today.
Employers are being reminded that they must adhere to the Return to Work Safely Protocols, in order to keep staff, customers and suppliers safe.
The Government encourages all those who can work from home to continue to do so.
The Government continues to advise people to ‘stay home’ and ‘stay local’ as the country moves into the next phase, ‘Phase Two Plus’ as it has been dubbed since the roadmap was altered.
From today, the over-70s can again welcome a small number of visitors into their homes.
People can travel within their own county, while groups of 15 people can meet for outdoor sporting activities.
Shops reopening will be required to operate staggered hours, open no earlier than 10:30am and allocating dedicated time at the start for elderly, vulnerable and at-risk groups.
Amenities such as libraries and playgrounds are permitted to reopen again.
Shops in shopping centres cannot open today, but will be permuted to resume trading from June 15.Tags:
